The Butterfly Queen

The Butterfly Queen

Dead among the roses

Above the cold, cold ground
where the Spotted Flycatcher dances
hopping in the bluebells,
a corpse candle lights the way.

Dead among the roses

The blue flame
and the fireflies
and glow worms
light the way.

Dead among the roses

Midway along the bowered pathway,
therein she finds her peace
from the cold, cold world
within her shallow grave.

Dead among the roses
